Summary of "Radiological evaluation of primary breast sarcoidosis presenting as bilateral breast lesions."

Sarcoidosis is an idiopathic multisystemic inflammatory disease that may exceptionally involve the breast and can have imaging features suspicious for benign or malignant lesions. Biopsy should be required to distinguish between breast sarcoidosis and malignancy, because clinical, mammographic and sonographic findings can be ambiguous or inconclusive. This case discusses the radiological manifestations and the value of different diagnostic features, and names the most relevant differential diagnosis.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

A fluid-filled closed cavity or sac that is lined by an EPITHELIUM and found in the BREAST. It may appear as a single large cyst in one breast, multifocal, or bilateral in FIBROCYSTIC BREAST DISEASE.

A common and benign breast disease characterized by varying degree of fibrocystic changes in the breast tissue. There are three major patterns of morphological changes, including FIBROSIS, formation of CYSTS, and proliferation of glandular tissue (adenosis). The fibrocystic breast has a dense irregular, lumpy, bumpy consistency.

Abnormal accumulation of lymph in the arm, shoulder and breast area associated with surgical or radiation breast cancer treatments (e.g., MASTECTOMY).

Metastatic breast cancer characterized by EDEMA and ERYTHEMA of the affected breast due to LYMPHATIC METASTASIS and eventual obstruction of LYMPHATIC VESSELS by the cancer cells.

Carbohydrate antigen elevated in patients with tumors of the breast, ovary, lung, and prostate as well as other disorders. The mucin is expressed normally by most glandular epithelia but shows particularly increased expression in the breast at lactation and in malignancy. It is thus an established serum marker for breast cancer.
